Valkyrie II class fleet escort cruisers are specifically designed to use the 120mm turrets designed to be retrofitted to the "Hel" class CAs. They are to supplement the anti-aircraft capabilities of the fleet. Turrets simmed as triples to simulate increased weight of HA/LA mounts, twins actually mounted.

You could likely edit the acctual armament entry in the SS file to reflect the acctual mounting of twins. Wouldn't want to frighten the neighbours!
